"Nudes with Lyres," Rare, Limited Edition Wall Shelf with Symbolist Prints

$2,900

About

Extraordinarily rare, this rosewood and brass shelf unit incorporates a pair of Symbolist/Art Nouveau prints featuring male nudes playing highly stylized lyres by Adolfo Magrini. The shelf unit maintains its original labels from Milan, indicating that the prints were two of a set published in the fourth volume of the "Modelli D'Arte Decorativa." The shelf was one of a limited edition produced by Bestetti and Tumminelli in Milan. Magrini is known for his sensuous paintings and graphics, including murals, posters and illustrations, influenced by Art Nouveau and the other great movements of the day.
